I'm sure that you had a good time at the meet and greet. I know I did.

You also have the oppertunity to meet some of the fastest racers in the world. The next is day is Wednesday where qualifying hasn't even started. You now don't feel awkward asking them for help because you introduced your self the night before. With great help there is ampul time to get some good laps in.

The Spec GT class should have mandatory headlights and mains should be run with the room lights off.

guys complaining about this need to sign up for the worlds next year... that's $325 for the first entry and all you get is a shirt. Vegas is the best onroad race in the states with some of the best competition from not only the states but the world. and it's Vegas where you can't go wrong because what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.... unless it ends up on www.rc50.com

The firmware in the scoring loop is going to be updated so the MRT transponders will not be recommended for this year.

If you have a different transponder you can give that to us when you sign up.

Most people covered what you get. We usually don't know what is in the handout/goody bag until we start to get the items from the sponsors.

I will get class prices posted on the site once I am back from my racing vacation. Amateur class is the most expensive because it is a hand out motor class which is different than most classes. If that is your first class it is 195.00 If you are not signing up for Amateur then the price drops from there. I will get it on the site for everyone but when you do sign up you should see the prices listed. You can also add classes when you sign up with us in Vegas.

We are working on something new during sign up so you don't have to stand in line and wait. As we get closer we will announce how we are going to do it. I forget who sent us the suggestion but it was very well received among us so Thank You!

Spot on. For me entering a Worlds (or Euros) means paying for a licence up front, and then the entry fee. Which brings me the right to race, and nothing else. Oh...there should be a banquet, but usually after Touring Cars so late for those only racing 12th.

IIC entry for most classes includes one set of control tyres. Plus the infamous goodie bag. Which includes your additive for the week. And an event t-shirt. Plus two nights of food laid on.

And it's in Vegas

Scotty, Boomer and the team run a well organised event. With the emphasis on good racing and having fun. Which makes the IIC my favourite race meeting

It is something similar to that but I don't have the specifics. I will let Scotty figure that part out.

Yikes, that just drove the price of three classes up $330. I'll see but I may have to pare back my entries.
